Security staff at Everton escorted a man attempting to warm up with Manchester City players off the field prior to this afternoon's Barclays Premier League game between the two sides.

The man, dressed in City kit, ran on along the touchline as City's players warmed up at Goodison Park and attempted to join them on the field.

An Everton spokesman said: "A man, believed to be from the London area, has been arrested by Merseyside Police for pitch encroachment."
